PACHECO-ROMERO, José. The coronavirus conundrum - New Omicron variant Challenges The woman. Rev. peru. ginecol. obstet. [online]. 2021, vol.67, n.4, 00007. ISSN 2304-5132.

It has been two years since the appearance of SARS-CoV-2, coronavirus which has spread rapidly throughout the world, causing more than 270 million infected people and more than 5 million deaths. This coronavirus has had many variants and mutations, which is its way of getting into humans more easily and producing COVID-19 disease. The result has been a trail of infections and deaths, with lethality around 1%, and has affected the way of life, work, education, the economy of the countries, increased poverty and violence, among others. We still do not have a cure for the disease, but vaccines have reduced the number of severely infected people and deaths. And antiviral drugs are emerging that could prevent severity and death from COVID-19, if used at the onset of infection. In this article we include some of the news and outcomes occurred in the last trimester and what it has meant for women's and pregnant women's health.
